On August 28, 2021, British journalist Christina Lamb published an article in the Times titled “Work with the Taliban or Repeat the Fear of the 1990s,” in which Pakistan’s National Security Office was addressed.
Baaghitv: According to a statement released by the Prime Minister’s Security Council Office, the subtitle of British journalist Christina Lamb’s report indicates that Pakistan’s National Security Adviser Dr. Moeed Yousuf has warned that if we don’t accept Afghanistan’s new authorities, 9/11 will be a new threat.
According to a statement released by the Office of the National Security Adviser, this assumption is false and ascribed to the National Security Adviser wholly incorrectly (NSA). In the interaction between Ms. Lamb and Dr. Moeed Yusuf, there was a blunder.
Ms. Lamb questioned the NSA on the record at her office in Islamabad on Friday, August 27, 2021, according to a statement released by the Office of the National Security Adviser. She never said that the West should “immediately recognise” the Taliban, as the storey claims, and no other 9/11 “warning” was tied to the Taliban’s formal “identifying.”
There is a dangerous misunderstanding that is harming professional journalism and threatens Pakistan’s true position and interests, which are in fact tied to the international community with which Pakistan continues to collaborate in Afghanistan.
The NSA does not condone such provocative statements, according to the statement, in order to emphasise that no threat was intended. The NSA made it clear that the international community knew that abandoning Afghanistan and Pakistan in the 1990s was a mistake, and that it was critical to learn from history.
He explained that leaving Afghanistan would leave a security vacuum, which could be filled by foreign terrorist groups posing a threat to both Pakistan and the West. Even the article’s pertinent straight reference to the NSA verifies this.
The NSA office also categorically disputes the article’s very evident and intended dramatic discoveries in the title and subtitle, and misrepresents the topic of “identification,” according to the statement.
The Pakistan High Commission in the United Kingdom issued a formal demand that the piece be removed immediately and that this public explanation be forwarded to the newspaper. We also stated that the interview was taped by the article’s author, and that readers of the newspaper are encouraged to release the whole audio in order to hear the full NSA remarks.
